Ten Database Security Vulnerabilities That Can Leave Your Company Open to Attack

Don Miller

One of the ongoing goals for this blog is to provide our readers with pertinent articles in the world of managed file transfer and data security.  I recently read an article written by Charlie Osborne, a blogger for ZDNet’s blog Zero-Day, entitled: “The top ten most common database security vulnerabilities”. The article discusses the top ten most common and serious database vulnerabilities that businesses need to be aware of, including sub-standard key management.  Key management systems are meant to keep keys safe, but the ZDNet research team found that companies are storing encryption keys on company disk drives leaving systems at risk and open to attack.  The article goes on to highlight nine other database security vulnerabilities that can leave corporate systems open to hackers and Zero-Day attacks.
